Seeking Freedom On The Road To Nomad Day 5 – Julia

Seeking Freedom On The Road To Nomad Day 5 – Julia

Freedom is defined as one’s ability to think, act, speak, etc. without being restrained. Freedom is what America stands for. Or so we think. While we are a free country, we are still restrained by how much our employer will pay us, how much house the bank tells us we can buy, how much we pay in taxes, what we pay for gas or food, etc. So what are our choices to achieve freedom. Accept that which we cannot control…

On The Road To Nomad – Day 5 Illinois to Missouri – Joe

I’m going to try something a little different today. Julia is behind the wheel so I’m actually starting this post from the passenger seat. During our tear down we got to talking to the people next to us who were also getting ready to head out. They are an older couple (not that we’re spring chickens or anything but we don’t get the discounts on pancakes at the IHOP like they do yet). They have spent some time at Yellowstone…

Seeking Freedom On The Road To Nomad Day 4 – Julia

What a wonderful evening last night in Montgomery Bell State Park. There was a gentle rain throughout the night with a light pitter patter on our roof. Below are my morning coffee views after stepping outside my door. This surely gave me two pieces of happy to start my day. These are the moments that define freedom to me. To be able to just enjoy this moment like it is frozen in time. A gentle feeling of peace that fills…

On The Road To Nomad – Day 4 Tennessee to Kentucky to Illinois – Joe

Day four was our second longest driving day thus far. We left Montgomery Bell State Park at 9:00 a.m. on the nose after another record breaking tear down. See, I told you I had a ladder and no, I am NOT wearing the same clothes as day 2. The 14 mile drive to the highway was winding, narrow and up and over many hills. At one point I had about 12 cars behind me because I was staying right at…

Seeking Freedom On The Road To Nomad Day 3 – Julia

It is really day 5, but I am just now getting to writing about day 3. We have traveled 1383 in 5 days towing a 30 foot tow trailer. Between the driving, time change, setting up each night and tearing down each morning to get on the road, I am completely pooped out. Me and my husband Joe decided to drive longer days in the beginning of our trip so we could travel less at the end and spend several…

Day three is under our belts. See ya later High Falls State Park, it was fun but we’ve got places to be. We got everything setup and ready to go in about 15 minutes less time than yesterday.

So while I am writing this on day 3, here is a quick recap of day 2. Welcome to Georgia Y’All! Today we drove from Ocala, FL to High Falls State Park in Jackson, GA. This is our second time staying at this park. It is one of the most beautiful State Parks we have visited for the night. Just a warning, the bath and shower houses really need to be renovated. I wish now I had taken a picture,…

On The Road To Nomad – Day 2 – Joe

Day two is in the books. Today our trip took us from the Santos Trailhead in Ocala Florida to High Falls State Park in Jackson Georgia. We started out with a wet and muddy set up to prepare our trailer for the road. Checked the tire pressures and lug nuts on the truck and the rig while Julia made sure everything inside the rig was travel ready. Then we followed the handy dandy checklist that Julia made for set up…

Seeking Freedom On The Road to Nomad Day 1 – Julia

The definition of a nomad is a people that move from location to location without a permanent home. In the past nomads moved to different grasslands to find food for their livestock. A new generation of nomads appears to exist to satisfy their craving of adventure and freedom. It has been a few weeks since I have posted since having my lasik eye surgery and adjusting to life back on the computer. The last few months have been a whirlwind…
